The Vaccine Alliance’s second replenishment raised over US$ 7.5 billion to finance immunisation programmes in the 2016–2020 period.

In June 2014, the Gavi Board approved a revised five-year strategy to continue to build sustainable programmes and deliver on our mission to save children’s lives and protect people’s health by increasing equitable use of vaccines in lower-income countries.

The 2016-2020 strategy builds on the previous strategy and draws lessons from the past 15 years. It is designed to adapt to the changing environment in which the Vaccine Alliance and the countries we support are operating.


The 2016-20 strategy has four goals, each supporting our overall mission: “to save children’s lives and protect people’s health by increasing equitable use of vaccines in lower-income countries”:

  1. The vaccine goal: accelerate equitable uptake and coverage of vaccines;
  2. The systems goal: increase effectiveness and efficiency of immunisation delivery as an integrated part of strengthened health systems;
  3. The sustainability goal: improve sustainability of national immunisation programmes;
  4. The market shaping goal: shape markets for vaccines and other immunisation products.


The strategic framework includes eight principles, intended to define the Vaccine Alliance’s characteristics, its business model and its aspirations: country-led, community-owned, globally engaged, catalytic and sustainable, integrated, innovative, collaborative and accountable.

Strategic enablers

The framework also includes four “strategic enablers”. These are critical elements that the Vaccine Alliance, including countries, need to put in place to successfully achieve the four strategic goals.

The strategic enablers are: in-country leadership, management & coordination; advocacy; resource mobilisation and monitoring & evaluation.

Gavi continues to help countries to build sustainable immunisation programmes. Sixteen countries have already started to fully self-finance all their vaccines introduced with Gavi funding. By the end of 2020, a total of 20 countries are expected to have transitioned out of our support.
